Baby Little Finger Carrot
Heirloom

Did you know that grocery store baby carrots are actually cut from regular sized carrots? Once you try the sweet flavor and crisp bite of this 3" long true baby carrot, you will never look back! Though it tastes great fresh from the garden, Little Finger was developed in France for pickling & canning whole.

When to sow outside: RECOMMENDED. 2 to 4 weeks before average last frost. Successive sowings every 3 weeks until 60 days before first fall frost. In climates with lows above 25° F, grow all winter.

When to start inside: Not recommended.

Harvesting: Do not allow carrots to get larger than normal size (3" long); flavor is best after bright orange color develops. Peak harvest period lasts for 3 weeks. Late summer planted carrots are very sweet if harvested after first couple of light fall frosts, but before heavy frost. In climates where temperatures don’t fall below 20° F, with protection, carrots can be left in ground for storage, and harvested as needed.
